David Lanre Messan: Academic Visitor at the James Currey Society, Oxford University
David Lanre Messan becomes a James Currey Society Scholar. He can best be described as a Nigerian serial entrepreneur, idea strategist, and startup builder, among other titles.
He was recently selected as an academic visitor to the James Currey Society in cooperation with the University of Oxford's African Studies Center.
DLM's drive for impact and success has been burning since his youth and this led him to make his first million at just 23 years old through his Infinite Impact Company and Green Yaggy. He is a graduate of the Lagos State Polytechnic where he studied Mass Communication. He also studied Disruptive Strategy at Harvard Business School, entrepreneurship and innovation in Scalabl, and earned a Diploma in Marketing Strategy from Nexford University.
Internationally, DLM serves as a community organizer for Harvard Business School Online. The school has published on its official website, an article on some of his works, recognizing his expertise as a strategist.
His other international achievements include serving as a Scalabl Global Ambassador for Africa and International Partner and Senator for Nigeria with the World Business Angels Investors Forum. In 2011, David was selected as a pioneer global shaper of the World Economic Forum (WEF), where he served for five years and went on to become the community's curator in Lagos and a member of the WEF on collaborations.
Through FirstFounders Inc, his most recent venture, he's helping companies operating with traditional business models to take advantage of technology and establish a digital footprint. FirstFounders is also one of the fast-rising venture studios in Africa and is committed to building out the ideas of tech startups into investable MVPs.
DLM has always had a passion for arts and storytelling and that is why he dabbled into music at some point in his career. Being the forward thinker he is, he's found a way to unite his passion for arts and storytelling with his passion for business and entrepreneurship.
FirstFounders Inc. is a venture studio committed to building the technology of early stage startup ideas into investable Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) while positioning them for growth. We are building a startup ecosystem where early stage founders with value-driven tech startup ideas will be continuously provided the platform to thrive and scale their project ideas with access to technical support, go-to-market strategies, product design, access to funding, mentorship and an ever supporting community of experts and founders.
